47832 Yarnton 2 January 2009

47832 Solway Princess passes Yarnton on 2 January 2009 with the late running 1Z79 10:00 Southampton Western Docks to Manchester Piccadilly DRS Cruise Liner special, with classmate 47802 Pride of Cumbria on the rear of the train. The tour had previously worked south on 11 December 2008. The lighting was very difficult for this picture, as the sun was virtually directly behind the train, so it was probably fortunate that the sun had actually gone into a bank of cloud by the time the train came. Incidentally the dark blob in the field in the background is not a technical fault but a solitary black sheep!
